HC Deb 10 December 1953 vol 521 cc272-3W
103. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Minister of Education what total cuts she made in the estimated expenditure by Welsh local education authorities for the year 1953–54.

Miss Horsbrugh

Local education authorities in Wales as in England are expected to exercise economy in expenditure in accordance with Circulars 242 and 245. They have not been required to submit estimates of their expenditure for 1953–54 for my approval and there has, therefore, been no question of my making cuts in their estimates.
